Today marks the launch of the new WhitePages for Android application. In recent weeks there has been an Android explosion, and Google Android-powered phones are now available from almost every major US wireless carrier. AdMob recently noted that 20% of the smartphone market is now Android phones – that’s up from 2% just 8 months ago!
So, it’s not surprising that we’ve gotten a lot of requests to take the People Search, Business Search and Reverse Phone number search found in many of our other applications and make them available for Android phones. The new WhitePages app includes all of these features and more for free — and complements the Top 10 grossing Caller ID app that we released for Android earlier this year.

Here’s a quick rundown of what WhitePages for Android can do:
• People Search: Instant on-the-go access to the most comprehensive source of phone and address contact information when and where you need it – on your phone.
• Business Search: Find nearby businesses fast with your current device location and easy to use search that suggests most popular searches with just a few keystrokes.
• Reverse Phone Lookup: Put a name to unknown numbers by looking up phone numbers any time with the Reverse Phone keypad.
• Add to Contacts: Add the name, address and number from any WhitePages listing to your Android phone contacts with just one tap — keep your phone and Gmail contacts up to date and in sync.
• A free seven day trial of Caller ID: Identify unknown calls automatically — no need to check voicemail or call back to find out who’s trying to reach you. We’ve upgraded Caller ID to work better with new phones and wireless carriers. After the trial, you can choose to upgrade to WhitePages with Caller ID, or simply keep using all of the features in the free WhitePages app.
